  1. 1

    Write down the Vehicle Identification Number of your Subaru. The VIN is located on a metal plate on the dashboard and on the driver's door frame. The dealer will need this and your registration to sell you a new key fob.

  2. 2

    Make an appointment to get a new key fob and take your car to the dealer. You can find a local dealer at Subaru's website: If you've lost your keys completely and can't drive, ask if the dealer can send a technician to your home or have the car towed to the dealer.

  3. 3

    Purchase as many key fobs as you need for yourself and your family. The dealer will have them all programmed while you wait. Keep one in a safe place in case you lose your keys or your regular one becomes damaged; a fire safe is a good place.
